I'm getting exasperated at seeing the same Spanish seller and bubblensqueak all over the place, trying to justify a £35 price for a £10/12 toy.
Could also work a trade, if people were so inclined.



Next time I'm down near the Toys R Us on the A12 I'll have a look. 2 months ago they still had them.

No promises though.

Nice find!

The TV store in Norwich has DotM Leaders for £34.99 and Voyagers for £19.99 (including the red Ironhide), if anyone is interested.

Also, TRU seem to have brought out stock the Cyberverse Commanders, including the elusive (I found him in Italy) Guzzle. All for £4.99.

In other news, SkyWarpsGhost amazingness has materialised today!

Are the Power Core Combiners worth the effort btw? Always been on the fence about them.

The bots themselves are nearly as cool as the Human Alliance Basics, and they come with awesome Minicons. Not bought any of the derpy-limbed combiners yet, but quite tempted to get one of the Mobine sets to add on to whichever of them. Also...that Takara set with the boat dude and tank dude in Ultra Magnus Vs Galvatron colours is mighty appealing.

Hey Craggy, new to the collecting would you mind a) Telling me about the Mobine sets? Are they like the Fans Project upgrade kits and b)Could you link the 'Takara set with the boat dude and tank dude in Ultra Magnus Vs Galvatron colours' as im a great fan of anything Ultra Magnus-ey.

shipped a metric poop-tonne of stuff from TFSource there (to get the $200 to get the free Prime FE figure...which I might not get but if I do it's cause TFSource customer services are much better than some other companies and I could go on forever here so I'll just stop)

Anyway, I'm getting Breakdown. Along with the tiny tiny wee tiny wee toty wee tiny Perfect Effect Reflector bots in their new toy accurate versions. I kinda liked the first lot, how they were so similar, but the colours on the new ones really pop, and I like that they've unique heads and chests. Buncha AMWs coming too. Hopefully the FOC wave with Magnus et al is in stock soon, but after I get paid, so I can ship that and the rest of my Microns and stuffs.

I saw the other PE set at Kapow Comic-con last year. I think. It might have been them or just some tiny scraps of purple plastic. I didn't have a magnifying glass to check. ;)

Tesco had one Bulkhead amongst a sea of Primes in their Voyager section. A couple Soundwaves and maybe an Arcee or a Bee or something else that wasn't new in Deluxes, and the dark blue Bulkhead Commander class. Nowt particularly particular. :(

CT Bulkhead looks okay though. I'd probably have picked one up by now if I wasn't concentrating on nonTF lines recently and there wasn't the Roadbuster version coming next year. After I've got this Mini Boglin collection buy out I'm in the middle of sorted and all the upcoming OMFG releases covered and a new sofa bought in the sales I might still pick up CT Bulks. Will have to be feeling very rich and very, very bored before I give the Prime repaint from the same wave any serious attention though.
